I'm in my first year coaching a rec ball team and I'd like to get the thoughts of the folks on the forum. I have a couple dads helping me and they love to shout instruction to the girls while they are in the field. My favorite is with the pitcher, such as, bring the ball down or up and throw strikes. Then when the ball is put into play they start screaming where to throw the ball, each is usually to a different place.
I am more of a believer in letting the girls play and if something needs addressing do it in the dugout. If I yell anything it's more of, when the ball comes to you know what you're going to do.
What should we as coaches be doing when girls are in the field during a game? Thank you
